An enemy Mechanized Rifle Regiment is positioned across the river. We anticipate an attack into our area to seize river crossing sites that they can continue their offensive to the west. They are composed of T-90 tanks and BMP-3s with support from Brigade enablers (scout, artillery, engineer). We anticipate three possible axis that the enemy will attack along, as depicted on the map. We expect probing attacks at all crossing sites, and a decisive attack where it will suite the enemy best. We have also detected an enemy command node in Sayra. b. Friendly. To our north, our sister Battalion is defending along the river, but have detached C Co to our task force to support operations in the our AO. To our front, Brigade Recon is established in several small observation posts to provide early warning against advancing enemy forces. Our BN HQ is established in Gorre, to our north and brought its Unit Maintenance Control Point (UMCP) forward to support this operation (automatic repair/heal) A battalion reserve of 2x platoons (1x tank, 1x IFV) are also available upon request (TRIGGER 1) II. MISSION: Your combat team attacks to clear enemy forces from the town of Sayra so we may continue our Brigade attack to the east. III. EXECUTION a. Key Tasks 1.

  3. Hey not so new guy Join up with one of the sessions @Gibsonm hosts in the context of BGanzac, he is a good teacher. And you are always like everyone else welcome to join the Sunday Kanium MP sessions. So look at the postings. Then there are Team Sabers casual missions - ask @Lumituisku They are all good people. The Multiplayer games is where the fun is, and all new guys always gets a soft landing. Or when you want to go PvP, then there is TGIF as advertised on this site. I know vaguely that there are some other VU and groups, and they are probably fun to play with too if you can get a hold of them. Primary goal is to have fun. But for you and EVERY new guy or rusty old one: dont hold yourself back because you think you are not that good or might make a mistake. Whatever mistake you make, then all the experienced have made it at least twice already.
  4. Its never too late ! We have walk-ins that turn up at game start, and that is fine. Its just that as the guy who arranges it including picking the scenario its always nice to have an idea about how many we will be. So I have paired you with @Maic - he is good people, and I think you know him? Also- if you have any questions, then be there about 30 mins early W always play the latest version: See you later
  5. Welcome There are a few VUยดs. And they all welcome new players. There is also TGIF. Pick what suits you and is fun for you ๐Ÿ˜
  6. IMPORTANT: This is a smaller scenario in line with available players due to Easter. It is suggested that if we get higher manning than expected, that you Multicrew !

  7. Kanium Sunday 17th of April "Operation COLD CALL" by Apocalypse For all players: From now on we will be there about 30 minutes before go time to test everything. If it isnt sorted before GO time, then we will have to start the game at the allotted time, for the benefit of all the other players. Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1900 GMT (Same time as always in Europe - adjusted for Daylight Savings Time: click the time below for your local time) World clock 1900 GMT IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded with video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube or Twitch channel. IMPORTANT NOTICE II: I suggest to all who play with us download and install Chris mappack: ChrisReb Mappack V.4 Untile further notice will be working with this mappack and the official one when making scenarios. AS always, then we are running the session with the latest version of Steelbeasts. Everybody is Welcome: you don't have to belong to Kanium. We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance ๐Ÿ˜ Operation COLD CALL by Apocalypse A US piece-meal Company attacks an enemy-held airfield. I. Situation An enemy Mechanized Infantry Battalion is established in a defense around the Benmir airport. Our scouts have identified enemy recon forces operating just beyond Phase Line ALPHA, and several platoon battle positions along Phase Line BRAVO. Enemy recon patrols are extremely aggressive and our scouts were forced to retrograde, so enemy dispositions beyond the phase line BRAVO are relatively unknown but we anticipate mechanized infantry battle positions supported by tanks in a layered defense around the airfield. We also anticipate the enemy to emplace minefield obstacle belts to support their defense, as well as protection from MANPADs and artillery. Our force is relatively small, and a piece-meal composition of scattered units across the Battalion. The Division commander is pushing an aggressive timeline for seizure of the Benmir airfield to support airlift of critical supplies into the AO. We're out of time and must attack now. II. Mission Attack to seize OBJ BULL to allow friendly forces additional tactical infrastructure to support future offensive operations III. Execution Attack now, and attack with what you have. Additional reinforcements may arrive when or if they can. You have support from 2x transportation aircraft, and elements from B CO (light infantry), but beware of the SAM threat in the AO. Your attack will be supported with organic 120mm mortars and a battery of 155mm guns. IV. Service & Support Your company is fully supplied, and is being supported by HQ resupply assets (fuel/ammo) A FARP has been established to the south by G CO, and can be moved at any time. V. Command & Signal Friendly ID: On Map Contacts: Enabled Commanders Guidance: 1. You don't have much to attack with, certainly not as much as you'd like - but sometimes that life! 2. Do recon - locate the enemy and determine their composition - formulate your attack and don't attack blindly. 3. Take your time - Dont rush. Designate march objectives - seize terrain that you think is relevant and consolidate your forces. Rinse and Repeat.
  8. Bear with me, but a quick poll: Its Easter across the world, so many are probably busy on Sunday the 17th. IE. This upcoming Sunday the 17th at the standard time, so this: TIME and DATE I have a BIG new scenario lined up as a follow to the debacle in Turkey. BUT it needs numbers. A furious attack, obstacles, engineers and more... SO ... I need to get a handle on how many have time and energy to play this Sunday. Please respond with a thumbs up if you expect to participate - thank you. Alternatively, then we can always find a smaller one to match numbers. Also ... and while I sorta maybe have your attention: Any wishes for future scenarios and/or campaigns ?
  9. Thanks for the info: have changed the country. As for the VU, then when people have played with us a few times, then they are at least honorary members of Kanium in this context. That doesnt require anything from them, so its mostly recognizing that we appreciate them participating. If they want to have that removed or replaced then I will do that no problem. We dont do recruiting and no one is forced in and we are happy for anyone who joins us regardless where they come from. The more the merrier and the bigger the group who plays the bigger scenario we play. We also respect all other groups and have no issues with any other groups or VUยดs, and wish them all the best. Also I set this up every Sunday, so sometimes I make mistakes which is never done with malice nor because I want to promote anything.
  10. Everyone: PLEASE remember to install the Map Package for this specific scenario, and test the scenario afterwardsยด. It takes no more than 5 minutes if everything works. If it does not then please contact myself or @Major duck before tomorrow. Thank you.

Important Part Two the sequel: Usually we dont use new maps. This is a rare exception. The map link is below. And I will post a test scenario so you can verify that it works for you. Contact myself or @Major duck if you still cant make it work. Kanium Sunday 10th of April "A Question of Rocks", by ChrisReb For new players or players that have not played with us for a while: Please contact @Major duck or myself, to set up comms, right version and maps beforehand.

As a result both sides are moving forces into the area. The Enemy had beaten us to it with some Recon units and supporting infantry already moving through the area in advance of a main force. 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: A light Recon screen of BRDM is moving West through the area with a reinforced platoon of Mech Inf and a few Tanks (T72) to ensure the remaining local population is supressed and will not interfere with operations. Some additional in place forces will no doubt take up defensive positions along the Highway Behind this is a Regimental Recon Unit heading a mixed T90/BMP battalion probably around 15 mins further out but when you spot them will depend on your respective routes - DO NOT IGNORE THEM! T90 will have 1 x ATGM each. Another 1 x Coy T90 1 x Coy T72B1 and 2 x Coy BMP2 is also just off to the East and may get committed Enemy will have indirect support fires b)Own 1 x PLT M3A2 (scout teams with AT4) 1 x Coy M1A2 SEP 1 x Coy M2A2 (Inf and 2 x Javelin) 1 X CSS Indirect 3 x 6 fires (HE and Smoke only - unlimited) After 1 Hour: 2 x PLT M1A2 SEP 1 x PLT M2A2 1 x CSS Anything else a bonus 2) MISSION: A Clear the 3 Objectives along Highway 6 of all enemy forces B Ensure less than 2 PLT equivalent (less than 6 callsigns) enemy AFV West of PL Rock 3) EXECUTION: You are to penetrate the enemy Recon Screen and Identify the enemy main axis of attack and halt it. Following this you are to attack East and clear Highway 6 The direction of the enemy Reg Recon will indicate route of at least first Company of enemy main force CARE: Enemy Indirect is known to be well directed so if spotted do NOT sit there without moving position at regular intervals! 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: Co to control indirect fires MAP FOR THIS SCENARIO: MAP FILE Testscenario: CG60 A Question of Rocks test.sce
  13. I would be happy to have all of you: BUT ... I would be a happy camper if I could convince you Gentlemen to take A1 PLT ? ๐Ÿ˜
  14. Gentlemen: We need a few more Gentle- or not so gentlemen for The Greater Good ...
  15. Thank you @Jartsev for your time and energy I stand corrected. So I must simply apply more effort. ๐Ÿ˜„
  16. I can see no flaw or gap in neither your premises, arguments nor conclusions. In short: I concur with your well formulated reply.
  17. Disregard ... apparently I am one diaper away from retirement home and blind on both eyes ... MECHINF boss for you I think ๐Ÿ˜
  18. AH ... good that one of us are awake: I blame old age, bad eyesight and poor judgment .... ๐Ÿคฃ
  19. Ahhh ... how very rhetorical of you. ๐Ÿ˜Š Ok ... I will nab: I will not accept the false premise that the tank is outdated as the basis of an argument because I believe doing so renders it logically unsound. Every one who have tried to put the tank in its early grave since ... 1917 ... have been proven wrong. They have never accepted responsibility for their circular logic nor for the false premises of their arguments and worse choices. But one relative recent example is the Netherlands, which abolished their tanks and sold them off to anyone who wanted them, including Finland (so good for Finland obviously). But ended up leasing German tanks because ... who knew ... the tank wasnt outdated. And thats respectfully and unpolemically about all the energy I will expend on that. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  20. Hey I do not have a test scenario. But as one who have run a scenario or two on OPFOR side, then I have an issue with the BRDM2-AT. As in even when its stationary, pointed in the right direction and within range, then it does not engage the ENY. And this is even when then ENY is for example Leopard 2A4 and I have armed the BRDM with Konkurs missiles, which should penetrate them from all aspects.
  21. So many people have tried for so long to make the absolute claim that tanks are absolutely outdated, that I will not even begin to repeat their obvious false claims. The Main battle tank - properly supported and part of a larger force and as one tool in the toolbox, so call it combined arms or whatever the doctrine and approach, will not be obsolete in the foreseeable future. I would submit so much in line with what others have stated, that there will be more support in various forms. Including protection. But likely also more intel gathering assets to deal with ATGMs and infantry with other weapons than the tank. This like many other things is where its easy to mix cause and effect. And having a past as a historian, then isolated in that field, I have seen many academics trying to earn a name by making a thesis which with absolute certainty, makes some claim or another. And those historians are usually VERY reluctant to admit their mistakes because it takes away their academic credentials and chips away at the foundation of their names as historians. So the truth if one can even make that claim, of a matter is usually found it the nuances and middle ground between claims on both ends of the spectrum. And you should always take any information - including from peer reviewed sources which youtube/twitter are NOT, with a respectful but robust level of scepticism.
